8/6/2015 150 births away from 100,000th delivery at Stony Brook - 19 babies born on Aug. 5 For the Mann and Rodriguez families, Stony Brook is a family affair in more ways than one. Evelyn Mann, a Stony Brook University retiree, delivered her daughter, Deborah Mann Rodriguez, at Stony Brook University Hospital on Jan. 4, 1982. Deborah, who holds both a bachelor's and master's of science from Stony Brook University, currently works in grants administration in the Office of the Vice President for Research at Stony Brook. And continuing her mother's tradition, she gave birth to her daughter, Madison Rodriguez at Stony Brook University Hospital on Jan. 11, 2014. All three were kind enough to attend yesterday's group photo session for Stony Brook University employees who were either born here or who delivered their children here. Thank you to the Mann and Rodriguez families for helping us get towards the 100,000th delivery milestone, and congratulations on the addition of Madison to your families!
